8 Stills From Taylor Swift’s Blank Space Video That Are EVERYTHING

I do my best not to utitilze too much so-called “basic bitch speak.” I.e., “I’m dying,” “I can’t,” “This is literally, everything” “I can’t even,” “Stop,” etc.

But sometimes, it’s the only way to describe things.  Like Taylor Swift’s new video for Blank Space.  Because that shit is EVERYTHING.  I can’t with it.  I’m dying from it.  It needs to stop. But also NEVER STOP.

Since this video has clearly left me without words, here are 8 (+1 2 bonus) stills to prove my point.

1. We’ve just gotten started and already I can’t even.

2. This dip, this dress, it’s all just too much.

3. Running in a ballgown? I want it.  I need it.  Oh baby, oh baby.

4. This picnic + red lip combo is literally the best thing I’ve ever seen.

5. THROWIN SHADE.

6. This leopard and bleeding mascara is KILLING me. Also GET OUT OF HERE YOU ADORABLE TINY BABY DEER.

7. Shut up with this crop top and shorts set.

8.  An axe? A horse? That dress?  EVERYTHING.

BONUS. This Mean Girls reference?  I AM LITERALLY DEAD FROM NOT BEING ABLE TO EVEN.

In case you’re an idiot and haven’t devoted your morning/afternoon to this video.  Here it is in all it’s magnificent glory.

 

EDIT: Re-watching the video I’m ashamed to admit I did not include this beauty.  TWO HORSES, A CAT, AND MARBLE FLOORS?! I mean…

Lady Antebellum have released a new music video starring Keith Apicary…and it’s glorious

Here’s a little dose of fun for your Wednesday – country trio Lady Antebellum have just released the new video for their song Freestyle.  But what makes this video so special, you ask? Well, it stars the one and only Keith Apicary – a loveable and overly-confident not so young gamer played by YouTube sensation Nathan Barnatt.  Barnatt as himself directed the video, which features Keith doing his signature gif-able dance moves all over NYC, ultimately finding himself on stage with Lady Antebellum.  The song and the video are both nothing but fun, so go ahead and allow this odd pairing to brighten up your hump day a little.

Also, if you haven’t ever seen Keith auditioning for the Kimberly Cole music video, do yourself a favor and watch it like, now. (Link here).

10 Questions for Katy Perry Regarding “This Is How We Do”

Dear Katy Perry,

Today a friend instructed me to listen to your  new single “This Is How We Do.”  Seeing as this friend and I almost always see eye to eye on all things pop, I happily obliged.  While I am sure that I will end up singing this song ad naseum for the next few months – upon reaching the end of the track, I found myself with more than a few questions for you in regards to this song.  I would be more than grateful if you are able to provide me with answers to any of the below:

1) First and foremost – is this really how you do?

2) What exactly do you mean by “all my girls vintage Chanel baby?” Are your girls vintage?  Are they Chanel babies? Please clarify.

3) Just so we’re all on the same page – you know you’re a white girl, right? Like, dated and collaborated with John Mayer white.

4) What exactly is “no big deal”?  The song? Your life? The various popsicles featured in the video?

5) Could you please elaborate on how you, Katy Perry, “straight stunt?” Gymnastics? Shooting hooops? Driving cars off of cliffs?

6) No question, just wanted to give props for somehow working in La Super Rica into a song.  (Side note: Now I wantttt itttttt)

7) Have you yourself ever used rent money to pay for bottle service?

8) Who was this song written for originally?

9) Are you absoultely, positively sure you would like the beat back?

10) And finally, where can a girl get a pair of those pizza earrings???

Your timely response is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely yours,

Rachel

Kristen Stewart Makes Her Acting Debut In “Just One Of The Guys”

By now you have probably seen the new video for Jenny Lewis’s latest single “Just One of the Guys” from her forthcoming album “The Voyager.”  It stars Jenny Lewis, Anne Hathaway, Brie Larson and Kristen Stewart alternating between white suits with pretty/punk-rock hair and makeup and full Adidas jumpsuits with flat brims and mustaches.  The video is pretty run of the mill aside from it’s all star cast goofing around and pretending to play intstruments, but there was one thing that struck me: Kristen Stewart. Is it just me or she actually acting in this?  And well!  She’s almost, dare I say, funny?  Of course, this is only while she’s in her “guy” look – as a lady she’s her usual pouty old self.

So props to you Kristen Stewart for making me chuckle.  Perhaps you missed your calling as the hilariously douche-y dude in a Disney channel original sitcom.

VIDEO: Volcano Choir Performs “Comrade”

A little treat for the end of your hump-day, courtesy of Pitchfork.  A really excellent song from Justin Vernon’s latest project Volcano Choir, and because it’s Justin Vernon, of course it’s an immaculate performance.  Enjoy!

 

That’s it, I’m moving to Norway…

I mean seriously.  This song.  There are no words, except for bippity bop bap baweeee dop, and mo-o-or-or-orse.

Okay, to shed some light on what I’m talking about, this morning Gawker posted this article about two guys from Norway named Ylvis who have released what they dubbed “the song of the summer.”  I, of course, was slightly dubious as to whether or not this claim was true, but let me tell you – it ABSOLUTELY is.  The song is called “The Fox,” and that’s all I’m going to say, as there is simply no string of letters and sounds I can put together that can describe what you’re about to see.

The video is below.  Watch it a million times, cause this shit is about to go mega viral.  In fact, let’s play a fun game, at the time of this post the video has 291,469 views.  How many does it have when you watch it?  Let me know in the comments!
